Bon Appétit!

This week, Mme Yovana Renghen and Mme Melisa Comte's Grade 10 French classes enjoyed a lesson in cooking - in French! Chef Christophe came to SJR to teach them how to make a 'fiesta wrap', a tasty combination of 'avocat, fromage à la crème, dinde et épinard' (avocado, cream cheese, turkey and spinach). Along the way, they picked up some useful cooking skills as well as improving their French culinary vocabulary, of course!

St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
